Partnering with Dialog Enterprise signifies Durdans Hospital’s dedication to leveraging advanced technology for the betterment of patient care and operational efficiency. The deployment of the SDWAN solution is poised to elevate the hospital’s network infrastructure, ensuring seamless connectivity across its island-wide laboratory network.
